Showing you... my kitchen, well, a teeny bit

Today is day two of Robert's Photo challenge. He asked us for pictures of our kitchens... I think maybe he's remodeling and he's looking for ideas. Or, he's working undercover for the Health Department and wants to see the mess.

Well I'll foil that plan!

Here's a little fellow that sits on a shelf (he thinks it's a wall, I don't argue with him). Mom bought it for Chicklet when she was little since she babysat for her a lot and my daughter has a fondness for soft boiled eggs you can stick a piece of toast in.

Ladies and Gentlemen and other bloggers (I don't discriminate... gee, I wouldn't even be welcome on my own blog if I did!)... I give you (figuratively, of course):

Humpty, who unfortunately didn't have a head on his shoulders. I think he felt a bit naked.


He better not fall, I will not take very kindly to the king's horses trotting about in my kitchen.

I had fun playing with this picture. I used Picnik to give it a cartoony (is that a word?) look since he is the stuff from which children's tales are made.

Don't forget to go visit Robert and the other very cool participants in this challenge. You know, this is the great thing about blogging... you get to meet neet new people from all over.

Tomorrow... my front door, again.

I love eating my soft boiled eggs out of these things. Makes me all sentimental to see one...

Travis said...

Did it ever come with a head?

Anndi said...

June: Recently, we were on vacation and I had to give Chicklet her soft boiled egg out of a plain bowl. She was not amused.

Travis: Actually, he came with a little egg-shaped soap. The soap is long gone unfortunately. I guess I'll have to find something to put in old Humpty when he isn't an egg cup.

Gattina said...

That's a very teeny "teeny" bit ! ! Now we will all think that your kitchen is an awful mess ! your fault, lol !

Anndi said...

Gattina: You might be right... ;)

dianne - bunny trails said...

LOL!! What a great entry. Yeah, I wouldn't want horses trotting through my kitchen either. I can see why he's embarrassed. Headless and all, for the whole bloggy world to see. :D

Anndi said...

Dianne: Thanks! Glad to get a giggle out of you. Mondays are for silliness. ;)

I think I've had eggs everyway but one- soft boiled! We redid our kitchen and dining area a couple of years back... I've got a post on it with photos if you wonder what it looks like..

Charles Gramlich said...

this is a hilarious post. I really got a laugh out of the sidewise comments.

Anndi said...

Buff: Never? really? They're really good... add some salt and pepper and my Dad always like to add a pat of butter..... now I'm hungry.
Of course I want to see where you create those luscious yummy saliva inducing recipes of yours!

Charles: Woohoo! Glad you enjoyed it. Sometimes I think I'm just too silly.

Dana said...

There is no such thing as too silly! Loved this photo, but loved your creativity even more!

Carletta said...

Love this cartoony little guy!

You know, I bet Robert is remodeling or looking for a new place - mailbox (how does the front yard look, kitchen (they always need makeovers, tomorrow the front door ( curb appeal). We might want to keep our eye on Robert! :)

Brian o vretanos said...

The picture's come out very well!

Slyde said...

man, since you've been having this stomach flue thingy, you've been posting like a fiend! i cant keep up!

Kay said...

Poor guy... I know, its hard to get a head in this world...

(couldn't resist)

You are braver and more creative than I... I am afraid of my kitchen.

Akelamalu said...

That's cute! I don't very often eat boiled eggs but I could be persuaded if I had one of those. :)

Anndi said...

Dana: I guess silly is one of the things that makes life interesting! Thanks.

Carletta: Thank you!
I'm going to watch Robert like a hawk, I am.

Brian: Thanks! You know *nudge nudge* it,s not too late for you to join us *wink wink*

Slyde: I'm happy to report I am feeling much better. Sadly, I'm back at work. There's always a flip side.

Kay: Bwahahahahaha! That was very cheeky!
The kitchen scares me too sometimes...

Akelamalu: Well with your son's new acuisition I think a cute little eggholder is a great idea!

Jean Knee said...

I have a large sized cock in my kitchen

Anndi said...

jean knee: And I commend you on how clean you keep it. You must spend hours on end polishing it.

Raven said...

Very cute. Hope you never have to face all the kings horses and all the kings men. That would be messy.

Bond said...

cartoony ..yup a word...well in my world it is...

Dr.John said...

A cookie jar. What a great idea.

Anndi said...

Raven: Ha! Actually, it might be an improvement!

Bond: Why must you take away my glee at the thought of invening a new word?

dr. john: He'll be pleased he appeared big enough to pass as a cookie jar.

Rebecca said...

I love the effect on that photo... Your blog cracks me up in the best way. :)

Bee said...

jean knee has the perfect head for that cookie jar or should I say skull?

Jenny @ Daily Dose of Motherhood said...

Now how cute is that?! I'm lovin' it, thanks for sharing!

Ron said...

Ok...the first thing I have to say is....

I LOVE SOFT BOILED EGGS THAT YOU CAN STICK A PIECE OF TOAST IN TOO!!!

Tell your daughter, when you come to visit me in Philly, we'll go for a wonderful and inexpensive breakfast at favorite spot of mine!!

And Anndi...what a GREAT SHOT!!

I totally have a fondness for Humpty. I feel so sad for him.

I love what you did with Picnik!

Bravo!

Anndi said...

Rebecca: My name is Anndi and I'm a Picnik addict! LOL
Shall I call for the King's Men?

Bee: Maybe she'd give me the old crow head ;)

Jenny: Thanks for stopping by!

Ron: Well hello my fellow Picniker ;)

And for dessert.. chocolate! She's a chocolate monster too!

I never could figure out excatly what the moral in that story was, but it is sad isn't it?

HUGS

Robert said...

Yet another fun shot. And to hear that you had fun adding to it makes it even better. Did I tell you I'm glad you're participating? :)

Regarding your quote on the side, "There is no singular truth," is that statement one of singular truth?

Anndi said...

Robert: Thanks, I really do enjoy this challenge immensely.

Just like different people see different things when they look at the same photograph, truth is relative. It's about perception and point of view.

Bond said...

I never said it was not YOUR word...just that it is a word in MY world...LOL

Anndi said...

Bond: I'd expect all of my coined terms to be words in your world... after all, you worship the quicksand I walk on!

San said...

Humpty looks like he presides over your kitchen with grace. I love what you did with the cartoon enhancement.

Desert Songbird said...

Cartoony is ABSOLUTELY a word. I declare it so.
